    Yeah it is quite terrible that healthy food is more expensive. If the government wants us to be healthier they should lower the prices. Of course though, we know this will never happen. Damm giant corporations.

      It’s a terrible thing. One of these days the poor will have nothing left to eat but the rich.

        I think that’s called the zombie apocalypse.

    I would love to stir-fry it and use this as filling in my corn tortilla for a yummy brunch 😛

      That would be really good too. Maybe. Can’t see myself liking hot, wilted lettuce though… Is that what happens?

    Looks great! Not related to the new year, but I’m working on going vegetarian, and one of my friends said “those bag salads at the store, they come with everything in them, and it’s 500 calories or less and you can eat the whole bag!” LOL. So, I may have to develop a love for salad! 🙂 I love Crainsens, though, I’ll have to stock up on those!

      Craisens in salads are amazing! Good luck on going meat free, i can never give up bacon!

    I can’t wait until Farmer’s Market season rolls around again, but in the meantime you are right, it is a huge ripoff to get fresh veggies and such. Even more so in urban areas. I buy mostly frozen and keep away from salads for right now so I don’t waste the stuff in case I am not in the mood for one that day.

    Looks good!

    MDW Karen and I do the bag salad thing, but with the meat and side, not instead of the meat and the side. I couldn’t go without, but the salad really does help cut down the portion size (and cost) of all the rest of the meal. Your recipe above looks outstanding, Cheney. Good work there.

    Salad looks good! It’s funny to hear this ‘shopping the parameter business.’ I always shop parameter. Don’t ask me what’s in the middle of the store. I have no idea.
